    Hey, just wanted to thank you for your page on the so-called "horned skeletons." As a PA inhabitant with a slight penchant for the supernatural, couldn't help but be curious about that and it was a relief to find some valid research pertaining to the stories.

    Also, if you attend this presentation, perhaps you could post something on it here? This looks very interesting.
